Happy #WildWed from Stone Zoo!

Stone Zoo
This #WildWed, get up close and personal for snack-time with Linne’s two-toed sloths Lunesta and baby Molasses!

Fun fact: sloths are omnivores but eat a mainly vegetarian diet. Sweet potatoes are a favorite treat for the sloth family here at Stone Zoo!

Bo Zavala omg soooo cute! Who knew sloths could be this adorbs. Melts my little black heart 🖤

I'm trying to imagine a wild sloth trying to catch a meat based meal. I can see why they usually eat vegetables.

I wish Houston had more sloths

Too cute

Love the names
